The Bog arc was very intense and exciting. 9/10.

This is a candidate for best series of 2011, in my book.

Was anyone a little pissed off that Kaiji blew the left over winnings after freeing everyone on pachinko? Really? You just almost lost your life to slavery because of your gambling and the first thing you do is go back to it. What happened to his resolve to turn his life around at the beginning of season 2? Other than that it was the ending I hoped for. I 'm surprised to hear there is going to be a season 3 given this felt like closure on kaiji. Anyway 9/10.

Well, that blows that he's still poor even after wining against the Bog. At least he's debt free now I guess, but he will probably get into another mess again.

Just for the everyone's reference, 100,000 YEN is just $1000....

Secondly, the grand majority of Pachinko machines are nothing like the bog. You spend about $100 and get back $70-$80 if you screw up or if you're lucky you make about $120-$200 back and get a little back. It's a convenient way in urban Japan to spend a little money and kill time.

Yes, Kaiji is a loser but you guys make it sound like him playing pachinko again is some huge crime. There's a big difference between playing a $1000 per play slot machine versus a penny slot. He's just killing time.

I was disappointed with this season as well. Mostly because the bog arc took forever and lost its excitement/intensity fairly early... also wasn't the most interesting thing to begin with. At least it had a great final episode, very satisfying.

Edges out a 7/10.

On top of that there's a sucky side cast with that old man crying even more than Kaiji and Ichijou, who's personality is completely shallow and childish ("I was treated bad in the past so I must rise to power and hurt everyone" HURR DURR).

Hey, don't be harsh on Sakazaki! He's one of the best characters. He manages to bring comedy into an otherwise serious anime while still feeling realistic.

I can't help but agree on Ichijou, though. It feels like if he wasn't the closest Fukumoto has ever come to drawing a bishounen, he wouldn't be as popular. He's not half as competent and tragic as fangirls make him out to be either. I seriously hope he doesn't come back (I don't believe there has been any mention of him so far in series 3 or 4, but who knows what will happen?). Compared to Tonegawa, Funai or Otsuki, he's a bland fucking villain.

Also, if anyone has questions regarding series 3, I'm willing to answer them.

1.
I can be a bit more specific if you'd like.
2. You seriously expect me to know that? I meant information about the manga, like what characters re-appear and what games there are. In other words, story-related questions. I have no idea when it's getting an adaptation.
3. I'm reading part 3 right now.

this was a good ending. Endou pretty much played kaiji but Kaiji did accomplish what he wanted.

This season was great just didn't cover as much as the 1st

Wait a second...

1). 600 yen is around 6$. He blew that on pachinko? Big deal.
2). The guy in the suit gave him 30 yen. That's 30 cents. "Hey buddy, here's 30 cents, don't hold back on your celebration!"
3). Akagi is now a hotel owner?
4). Didn't Kaiji get at least a little suspicious that Endou had a pre-made contract for Kaiji buying him 3 beers in case he goes underground? Sakazaki didn't say a word?
5). Why are you saying that Endou is scum? If he was scum, he would've made the contract say that Kaiji should give him all the winnings and owe him a 100 million on top.

Also, as far as I know the character of Kaiji was based on Stu Ungar. Look him up. Basically, he is a genius in a life-or-death situation, but outside of the battlefield? He loses his wits, loses his compass and slips down into the abyss of hell - all the while ruining himself by being too nice of a guy for his own good.

It was 600000 yen which is 6000 dollars. The guy gave him 30000 which is 300 dollars and it is enough to buy food for everyone.

Don't think too much about that, it's just a reference.

Besides, if you've read Ten, you should know that...

Am I the only one here who didn't like the 2nd season? It's not shitty by any means but it sucks compared to the 1st season. I mean there were like two games, that dice thingy and pachinko, and neither of them were really entertaining (especially if compared to the life threatening games in S1). Also Kaiji makes such a big deal about repaying his friends and then just wastes the money on pachinko? Hasn't he learned anything from his mistakes? No character development at all it seems. On top of that there's a sucky side cast with that old man crying even more than Kaiji and Ichijou, who's personality is completely shallow and childish ("I was treated bad in the past so I must rise to power and hurt everyone" HURR DURR). Also, who didn't see some kinda backlash coming the very MOMENT Kaiji (against better knowing) signed yet another shady contract from Endouh? It was so called for that he'd end up with nearly no money again... Maybe I'm a bit to harsh here, but I am really disappointed and can't rate this higher than 5/10. It has "mediocre" written all over it and it wasn't keeping me on the edge of my seat, as I was used to from S1.



You're gonna hate season 3 then....

The entire season is one loooooong Mahjong match.


And how are the games not exciting? The only exciting game in season 1 was the Paper-Scissor rock thing. That's it. Everything after that was just idiotic. The crossing bridges thing was way out there/unrealistic. The sadistic card game was ok, and then the tissue box nonsense.

Season 2, you had the awesome bog gambling to start things off, and then you move on to real gambling, trying cheat a machine that can't be beaten. It's more realistic than the first season in my opinion
